The pyramids were already more than 2,000 years old when Herodotus the Greek historian visited Egypt (Around 450 B.C). A highly skilled corps of mathematicians, masons, surveyors and stone cutters carried out the job of building the pyramids. 100,000 workers were used to carry out the back-breaking task of moving and laying the stones of the largest pyramid – Cheops. Approximately 2.3 million blocks of stone were cut, transported, and assembled to create the 6-million-ton structure, which is a masterpiece of technical skill and engineering ability. The internal walls as well as those few outer-casing stones that still remain in place show finer joints than any other masonry constructed in ancient Egypt.
